Eliot + Kira | Engaged | A Colorful Engagement Session at the Dane County Fair in Madison, Wisconsin.

July 23, 2015

I’m pretty excited to share this engagement session with you because it is super different than something we would “normally” do–and I LOVE that! I love when couples want to really show their personality through their engagement session + take a risk that, in this case, TOTALLY paid off!!

Eliot + Kira are two of a kind : ) They are extremely successful + hard-working individuals, but they are also total goofballs who love to have a good time!! And laugh. A LOT : ) I am so happy they “re-found” each other after spending time apart because it is obvious they fit SO well together : ) Eliot looks SO proud to have Kira by his side (just wait until you see his face in some of these shots, you guys!! It is SO precious!!) + Kira lights up every team she makes eye contact with her hubby-to-be : )

Because these two will be having a vintage-themed circus wedding next July (we cannot WAIT for this!!), they decided that an engagement session at the Dane County Fair just made sense : ) Cotton candy included because they will definitely be serving it at their wedding!!! SO fun!! We wandered + jokingly teased each other + got so many COLORFUL + happy shots of these two together : ) You’re going to love them!! Spending time with these two in person made us even that much more excited for their wedding day–which I wasn’t sure was possible! Hehe : ) Enjoy some of our most favorites from Eliot + Kira’s e-session!

I just LOVE her ring!! How gorgeous is it!?!?!

SO many smiles!!!! They make me happy : )

A favorite <3
